HC Deb 21 July 1970 vol 804 c239
Mr. David Stoddart

On a point of Order. I am not sure that you called me by my correct name, Mr. Speaker, but it is about a mix-up in names that I rise to address you on a point of order.

I notice on the Division List for 20th July that I am included in both the Ayes and Noes Lobbies. It will be quite obvious to hon. Members on this side of the House that I went through only the "No" Lobby. Indeed, this occurred on 8th July, when although I did not raise the matter as a point of order with you, I raised it with your office, when those concerned were good enough to see that the matter was put right.

May I ask you now, Mr. Speaker, to put the matter right on this occasion and to do your level best to ensure that the same sort of thing does not happen again, for it is a matter of great regret to me that I should be included among some of the names on the benches opposite?

Mr. Speaker

Maiden speakers and new hon. Members are achieving remarkable things in this Parliament. The hon. Member has seemingly achieved a record in having voted in both Lobbies. A correction will be made.
